Port Logan fish pond is a must as you won’t see another place like it. Created by a blow hole formed sometime during the ice age, it is a tidal pool which enabled the Victorians to keep their fish for the table fresh.
Both the Mull of Galloway and Port Logan were used as locations for the 2018 film starring Gerard Butler, The Vanishing.
Portpatrick is another lovely coastal village with its quaint shops and cliff top walks. It is the start of the Southern Upland Way, easy for you to walk a little part of it. Look out for the cliff top Grand Designs house along the cliffs.
Stranraer is a very pretty town. Formerly the home of Stena Ferries to Ireland, it is now establishing itself as a great base for water sports having hosted the Skiffie world championships in 2019. It has a castle in the centre and a beautiful marina area as well as some interesting shops to visit.
If you fancy a change from the coast, head back inland to the Galloway forest.
